Kei Kamara scores first Premier League goal for Norwich City

Jamie McDonald

Kei Kamara did it. Few footballers ever realize their lifelong dream of scoring a Premier League goal, but a happy man from Sierra Leone did just that on Saturday.

Kei Kamara's journey in the English Premier League continued on Saturday with a 58th minute substitute appearance In Norwich City's 2-1 win over Everton. And, wouldn't you know it, it was Kamara who scored the Canaries' equalizing goal in the 84th minute.

It was a powerful, towering header that Sporting Kansas City fans have become accustomed to from Kamara. The cross came in from a corner on the left, Kamara darted through the center of the box toward the 6-yard box, cut the usually aerially dominant Marouane Fellaini off in the air, and thumped the ball downwards into the ground where it landed just across the goal line and into the back of the net.

The goal came at a crucial time for Norwich, down 1-0 after having a solid hold on the second half proceedings. Kamara made an instant impact after entering the game, beating Everton defenders to lots of 50-50 balls on the ground, and nearly everything in the air. Norwich forward Grant Holt scored the game winner four minutes into stoppage time after Kamara played some part in winning the initial header which fell to Holt a yard from goal.
